At Friends POV we got our introduction to event photography by photographing trade shows and their related networking events; whether it is a large party of several thousand or a more intimate venue such as a hotel suite party. Photos are a great way to memorialize your event and Friends POV knows how to take the shots that will remind the attendee of something that happened or a person they met while they were there; and they will make the person that could not attend, feel like they were there.
Friends POV will photograph your networking event and host them for you so everyone has easy access to them. Branding opportunities with your logo on the photos is a great marketing tool that we have personally used for more than 10 years. These photos are from the Showcase Hermosa put on by the Hermosa Beach Chamber of Commerce and Visitor’s Bureau, July 18, 2013 at 200 Pier Avenue, Hermosa Beach. Continue reading

Our head photographer has been doing event photography since 2003 and has been published in several trade publications as well as being featured on CNN’s iReport. What sets us apart from other event photographers is that we really enjoy what we do. Attending special events and photographing fun people having a good time should be fun and the photos should make the viewer either relive their experience or wish they had been there. FriendsPOV’s photos make you feel like you were there, even if you were not.
